MYRTLE BEACH — Georgetown police charged a North Carolina man in connection with an armed robbery of a victim, who had listed his motorcycle for sale on Craigslist, according to authorities.
Tevon Andre Allison, 19, was charged with armed robbery, grand larceny and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime and was booked into the Georgetown County Detention Center at 10:13 p.m. Oct. 24, according to jail records. Allison is being held on $45,000 bond.
Agents with the FBI violent crime taskforce in Gastonia, N.C., arrested Allison Oct. 18 and brought him to the Georgetown County Detention Center after he waived extradition, according to authorities. Georgetown police filed the charges after a man was robbed Sept. 18 after he met Allison and another person in reference to the victim’s advertisement on Craigslist.
The victim posted an ad that listed his motorcycle was for sale and had met Allison and the other suspect in the parking lot of Wal-Mart to discuss the sale.
